Break out from the humdrum with a trip to sunny California. San Diego vacation rentals offer a convenient home base while you explore nearby city attractions, stunning beaches, and dive into the food scene. Welcome to California, there’s something here for everyone.
Just 13 miles from the seaside beach community of La Jolla, our San Diego beach house vacation rentals offer access to a cosmopolitan, vibrant city environment, but with exciting outdoor attractions like hiking, biking, fishing, and of course surfing, right nearby.
There are 27 miles of car-free, winding, paved bike paths that loop around the activity-rich area of Mission Bay (great for families) and the Bayshore Bikeway includes 25 miles of scenic bike lanes along San Diego Bay. Whatever your skill level, you can find an adventure on two wheels —and a few photo ops on the way.
When you leave your vacation rental in the morning, you can explore the canyons, mountains, and deserts on two feet. Hiking trails are plentiful and well-groomed, whether you take off for an easy Sunset Cliffs beach walk or a three-mile vertical climb up Cowles Mountain. If you're looking to catch a wave, San Diego boasts big swells and waves, guaranteed to have you hanging ten before you know it.
Mission Bay boasts one of the largest aquatic parks in the world, so bring your water skis, kayaks, and fishing pole. With over 90 museums in San Diego County alone, this is a haven for arts and culture enthusiasts. Spend an afternoon walking around Balboa Park (home to the San Diego Museum of Art, Model Railroad Museum, and more), Old Town San Diego, and if you have kids, be sure to stop by the New Children's Museum downtown or the world-famous San Diego Zoo.
With an impossibly tasty food scene, it’s only a matter of where to start in San Diego. Stop by a corner taco stall on your way to the beach, dig into fresh seafood by the water, or head to Hodad’s Downtown for a locally-loved giant burger. Don’t forget to cool down with ice cream while window shopping on the boardwalk.
